Shania Twain Announces 2018 Shania Now Tour
She hinted at it before, but now, it's official: Shania Twain is hitting the road in support of her new album, Now. Twain's Shania Now Tour will take place in the spring and summer of 2018.
Twain will begin her Shania Now Tour on May 3, 2018, in Tacoma, Wash. Between then and early August, she'll stop in more than 40 cities, including a number in her native Canada. U.S. stops include Boston, Mass.; Washington, DC; Los Angeles, Calif.; Brooklyn, N.Y.; and more. The tour will conclude on Aug. 4, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nev. A complete list of currently announced dates is below.
For those interested in pre-sale access to tickets for Twain's 2018 tour, a Now album and T-shirt bundle, which includes access to pre-sale tickets, is for sale on her official website. Pre-sales will begin, per a tweet from Twain, on Aug. 22, while tickets will go on sale to the general public on Aug. 25.
In 2015, Twain embarked on what she said at the time would be her final tour. It was her first North American tour in 11 years, but she decided that she was finished with that aspect of her career.
“I just feel like I’m ready to hang my hat up in that regard,” she said at the time. “I just really want to go out with a bang.”
Shania Twain Through the Years
However, in the spring of 2017, Twain admitted that she was reconsidering touring again. She feels as though her “final” tour “kind of ended too soon,” as it was routed around her son’s school schedule.
“I felt like at that time maybe that was all I had left in me. I really felt that way,” Twain says, “but I was so energized by the tour and by the fans. For the first time in my career, I really felt like it was easier and the fans really gave me more than ever before for some reason.”
Twain will release her new album, Now, on Sept. 29. It will be her first new project in 15 years.
